Hundreds Say Good-Bye To 12 Year Old Haley Mathis
After more than a year battling wilm's tumor, Haley Mathis passed away on Tuesday. But her pastor says she was as brave as ever, even at the end. She even chose what people would wear to her funeral– red, white, and blue. On Friday, hundreds of people came to say goodbye to the little girl who touched so many lives. There were classmates from Norris Middle School, teammates from her softball team, and others who had been inspired by Haley's fight. Just a few months ago on her 12th birthday Haley ended up receiving literally thousands of cards and packages from all over the world. Her mother said it was one more illustration of how many lives Haley touched.
